Sofifi (Indonesian: Kota Sofifi) is a non-autonomous town on the west coast of the Indonesian island of Halmahera, and since 2010 has been the capital of the province of North Maluku. Previously, Ternate had been the capital.[1][2]

Tourism-wise, Sofifi is far from being a popular destination. It is a spread-out place connected by wide roads and interspersed with forlorn-looking government buildings, Sofifi serves travellers mainly as a junction on the route to Tobelo.[3]
